    Windows Media Player not compatible with Win 10


    Win 10 - DVD Player, Windows Media Player not compatible with Win 10? This is a shock!! I downloaded the Windows Media Player from the Store and it played the DVD once. When it did not work a second time, I spent 45 mins waiting for Microsoft support and an hour on the phone. They confirmed that the Windows Media Player is not compatible with Win 10. I got my money back but no one could give me a Media Player that is compatible with Win 10. This is clearly not good. Any suggestions please?

    Windows Media Player as it comes with Windows 10 is working fine. The app called "Windows DVD-Player" in the Windows Store should also enable DVD playback. Alternatives are VLC Media Player ("VLC for Windows 8" in the Store) or AVS Media Player.

    VLC and MPC-HC, both work well. VLC has the added bonus of being able to drag and drop a DVD ISO image file right into the player. MPC-HC is great in that you can configure it for various codecs. VLC mostly has all codecs built in, but you can always add codecs to MPC-HC.

    Thanks All. I downloaded and installed VLC. How do I set it up for Autoplay when the DVD is inserted? Even though VCS is installed when I right click on Autoplay VLC is not associated with Autoplay?
    Thanks
